    Get PDF
    Some fifteen years ago, Elizabeth and Robert Scott wrote an important article making the case that parents could be usefully described using a fiduciary model.

    Localism and Capital Punishment

    Get PDF
    Professor Adam Gershowitz presents an interesting proposal to transfer from localities to states the power to enforce the death penalty. In his view, state-level enforcement would result in a more rationally applied death penalty because states would be much more likely to make capital charging decisions based on desert, without the distorting influence of the severe resource constraints applicable to all but the wealthiest of localities. As well conceived as Professor Gershowitz’s proposal is, however, I remain skeptical that statewide enforcement of the death penalty would be preferable to continued local enforcement. First, Professor Gershowitz underestimates the benefits of localism in the death penalty. Localism, properly viewed, is not entirely negative and may actually be quite positive. Second, and more fundamentally, there is every reason to believe the “politics of death” would operate, at the state level, to defeat the salutary purposes of Professor Gershowitz’s reforms. Thus, as intriguing as it is, the prospect of statewide enforcement holds little promise as a means of rationalizing the administration of the death penalty.

    Cyberlaw: Problems of Policy and Jurisprudence in the Information Age. 4th ed.

    No full text
    This law school casebook starts from the premise that cyberlaw is not simply a set of legal rules governing online interaction, but a lens through which to re-examine general problems of policy, jurisprudence, and culture. The book goes beyond simply plugging Internet-related cases into a series of doctrinal categories, instead emphasizing conceptual issues that extend across the spectrum of cyberspace legal dilemmas. While the book addresses all of the “traditional” subject matter areas of cyberlaw, it asks readers to consider both how traditional legal doctrines can be applied to cyberspace conduct, and how the special problems encountered in the course of that application can teach us something about those traditional legal doctrines. The fourth edition, which includes contributions of new co-author Brett Frischmann, has been reorganized to clarify the themes of the book and updated to illuminate new debates at the heart of this evolving field. This edition groups the material into units addressing the who, how, and what of governance/regulation—fundamental questions that pertain to any legal system, in cyberspace or elsewhere. The fourth edition includes unit-ending case studies on governance of the domain name system, efforts to control the exchange of counterfeit goods in the online marketplace, and the Google Books Settlement, as well as updated treatment of a number of topics, including peer-to-peer file sharing, online behavioral advertising, regulation of sexually explicit speech, and ownership of user-generated content.
